Working on Watching: Television News Reports

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Television news reports can be difficult for students because of the speed of the discourse. Understanding that the reports have a basic structure, and making the most of what each part of that structure has to offer for language practice and cultural insight can help. Using paired listening and writing activities calling upon several types of online resources can also be productive. Examples in French, including a look at the TV5 website.
